Default Ideas for a new rep system

Hey everyone, I thought it would be cool to see some ideas to reform our abolished rep system. Maybe we can collectively come up with a system that works and can't be easily abused. Hopefully this will help Mike P. by removing some of the responsibility and time involved. I think some of us "rep abusers" probably have some good ideas. Just like big computer software companies hire "expert criminal hackers" to test the security of their systems, we could be the "expert rep abusers" that can help bulletproof a new rep system.

No ideas on a rep system, but what about a "PROPS" thread. Make it a sticky and have guys leave "PROPS" for other members? Sure its not perfect but it can be easily monitored and unwanted posts can be deleted. Just an idea.

How about a positive only feedback system on the post itself?
If you like the post...click the icon...If you disagree, make your own post, and let others see it.....
Then a particularly helpful post may have a "good post total" for all to see!!

Thanks Aarron.....did you click the good post icon?

Seriously though.....I think a positive only post feedback ( for the post itself)would be great!!
That way no-one can be negative and the reward is visual for a good post.
It's nice to see someone appreciate when you search out some info for them.

I may catch some flack for this but oh well. Your coming off as a bit of a jerk. The removal of the rep system seems to have brought the worst in some people.

Well, we didn't actually help in the removal of the rep system. If you got a chance to read Mike P's post, he said they had been considering it for some time and were going to do it regardless of our opinion. We let him know that we were aware we had abused the system and stated we wouldn't be upset if he removed it. I think most of us just like being here and chatting with fellow Wattheads. Some threads are serious and others are not but that's what keeps this place lively. If you aren't happy with Mike's decision, PM him and express it that way. To take it out on all of us who agreed the system was flawed is un-called for. Sorry EFG that you are letting this get to you.

Dang-it Scott.....you were part of the Rep abuse too!!!

And here you are in this thread....Ironic isn't it?

We all liked the old system, and made lots of Wattflyer friends.

Now we need to move on, and maybe there will be a new system that is better and less manipulated.....

We are here to enjoy talking to fellow RC people about RC and life and whatever else we want....

Be a part of it, or don't.
The rest of us choose to be a part of it.
I hope you choose to participate in your previous friendly manner.

Well said Murph.

I do think if we go back to something like the old rep system, your name should be automatically posted to the rep that you leave. If you leave a negative rep then you should have the cojones to stand behind it. I think we have learned our lesson about giving rep away like penny candy -fun as it was, I don't think we'll do it like that again (but new WF users may, so more thought is warranted me thinks).

I belong to a lot of different forums that don't use a rep system, and some that do. The ones that do always seem to have it's fair number of abusers.

I say we can do without. I have just as many friends on RCG as I do here. They were made by sharing in threads regarding our wonderful hobby, and other personal interests. We don't need a rep system for that.

My 2, YMMV.
